Fruiting Reishi
    #11413339 - 11/08/09 08:57 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

Hi guys, I posted this in the cultivation forum-

I'm going to be growing some Reishi out for the first time.  From what I understand, antlers form in high CO2, conks with lots of FAE.  So if I were aiming to end up with a bin full of antlers, could I just neglect the FAE completely and not bother drilling any holes?

Also, I've read that that 6500 K for lighting doesn't do much for these guys.  Sunlight isn't an option for me, so I'm wondering if I can get any comment on this, or if a Reishi grower out there can suggest an alternative.

Thanks pals.




Haven't had any luck finding any answers over there.  Wondering if anyone here might be able to help a bit with this.

I think all fruit bodies need air circulation to grow. But I guess less FAE would give you what you want. In regards to the other question, maybe a Metal Halide or some other HID might work, as long as you can compensate for the heat. :2cents:

He's not using any holes on the bin, I wonder if he's got any other kind of FAE happening though (aside from opening up to take pictures, etc.)




Why not :pm: OZZ/Pooboy on the matter? Also, if you have enough mycelia to go around, why not just try it?

Yeah, I guess I will drop him a line, inquire about his methods.  Thought I'd see if I could get a public conversation going on the matter, but doesn't seem like there are that many Reishi growers around overall.  Thanks for the suggestion.

I just started on my own isolation from a local fruit and the monotub idea sounds enticing. So I hope more discussion comes of this thread for both our sakes. I hope it works out for you.

I'll post my results.  My reishi culture won't be in for probably another few weeks, and then it'll take some time before I make it to fruiting, but eventually I'll have some details to share.  I've read fruiting these guys can take a hell of a long time.  But I've also read that they're the easiest of all mushrooms to grow, so we should have some luck even if we have to experiment a bit.

RR says that about Ganoderma spp. a lot. My culture came to me by the winds, not a mile form my home. I am thinking about spawning to grain (maybe after a cleanup run on agar) and fruiting indoors since my season is pretty much finished. If not, I'll store the cultures over the winter and fruit in the spring.

Reishi are easy to grow but I think that probably oyster is simpler.

You can just grow for antlers and not worry about FAE.

As for light, i am not sure, I have plenty of sunlight.  In my dark room I have reishi colonizing and they will still grow it has a very low light intensity.  I imagine the normal fluorescent tubes will work fine for a light source if I see the little light that comes into the dark room.

Thanks for the input solumvita.

I messaged poboy.  He let me know that his tub has two pencil sized holes in it.  That's all.  No opening it for fanning or anything.  He also let me know that he's using a compact fluorescent for lighting.  This should be no problem.
